Elon Musk appears to troll Megan Fox, saying he wants to hire ‘VP of witchcraft and propaganda’


Billionaire Elon Musk appeared to poke fun at Megan Fox on Sunday after the actress referred to herself as a “witch” during a nasty social media spat with conservative influencer Robby Starbuck.

Musk, the 51-year-old owner of Twitter, joked in a tweet that he was “looking to hire a VP of Witchcraft & Propaganda.”

Later, Musk replied to a Twitter user who said that Fox was “bad at propaganda.”

“Nobody is perfect,” said Musk, who bought Twitter for $44 billion last year and recently installed ex-NBC executive Linda Yaccarino as its CEO.

So far, Fox hasn’t responded to Musk’s post. It’s unclear what prompted Musk to weigh in on the situation.

Starbuck, a music video director and former Republican congressional candidate in Tennessee, drew Fox’s ire by claiming the “Transformers” star had “forced” her sons to wear “girl clothes.”

Fox has three children with ex-husband Brian Austin Green.

“These are Megan Fox’s sons,” Starbuck tweeted. “We used to live in the same gated community and our kids played at the park. I saw 2 of them have a full-on breakdown saying they were forced by their mom to wear girls clothes as their nanny tried to console them. It’s pure child abuse. Pray for them.”

Fox fired back in now-viral Instagram post, referring to Starbuck as a “clout chaser.”

“Irregardless of how desperate you may become at any given time to acquire wealth, power, success, or fame — never use children as leverage or social currency,” Fox wrote. “Especially under malevolent and erroneous pretense.”

Fox went on to accuse Starbuck of “exploiting my child’s gender identity to gain attention in your political campaign.”

“I have been burned at the sake by insecure, narcissistic, impotent little men like you many times and yet I’m still here,” Fox wrote in the lengthy diatribe. “You f—ked with the wrong witch.”

Starbuck later shared a screenshot of Fox’s post.

“Megan Fox has responded to my concern about her sons being dressed up in girls clothes with an IG post where she seemingly threatens me with witchcraft.” He wrote. “Does that seem like a sane response to you?”

Green also refuted Starbuck’s claim in an interview with TMZ, calling it a “bogus story.”
